Being certified as a Top Employer showcases EQ’s dedication to a better world of work, exhibited through excellent HR policies and people practices, reinforcing the ongoing drive to transform the business and listen to employees. EQ’s progression was also recognised at the end of 2023 with a HR Excellence Award win for Best Employee Experience strategy and a high commendation at the CIPD Awards for Best Employees Experience Initiative.
Andrew Stephenson, Chief People Officer at Equiniti commented:
“We’re beyond thrilled to have been awarded Top Employer status again for 2024, improving our overall Group score from 91.16% in 2023 to 93.68%. This is a tremendous achievement during a remarkable year when we ran a transformative leadership programme for all employees, recognised by the Top Employers Institute as HR Best Practice.
At EQ, we use our results from Top Employers to benchmark and continually improve our HR practices. This, combined with a strong employee listening strategy, is helping us to drive up employee engagement and attract and retain the best talent to our business. Our people are at the centre of our vision to become the leading global share registrar, offering complementary services to its client base. Of course, there is always more to do and work starts straight away to see where we can keep improving.”
Top Employers Institute CEO David Plink says: “Exceptional times bring out the best in people and organisations. And we have witnessed this in our Top Employers Certification Programme this year: exceptional performance from the certified Top Employers 2024. These employers have always shown that they care for the development and well-being of their people. By doing so, they collectively enrich the world of work. We are proud to announce and celebrate this year’s group of leading people-oriented employers: the Top Employers 2024.”
